Local Packie Beer List

Curious what good beers you are finding at the local stores - not the grails/whales...

Been digging the Night Shift brews

Very good is the Two Roads Lil'Heaven IPA - a tasty budget beer (@ $18 for a twelve pack it is budget in good beers )

Finch's Chimera Hardcore - very, very good (interestingly - local packie said brewery had closed but I see no indication of this)

All the Lagunitas

good to see Night Shift is exporting out of state, good beers there

two that come to mind and have proven to distance themselves recently (here in CT) are New Belgium Abbey (Belgian Double) and Collective Arts Stanger Than Fiction (Porter), two Best In Class to be sure

if I was back on Long Island I would also add Single Cut Half Stack and Full Stack IPAs.

I guess local is a bit confused - I got it on the Mass side of the RI border so distant by RI standards, close by Mass standards

Tough to justify trips to monson with druve time and limits. Trillium is easy and you can stock up. As far as local places and more available beers go; I like hop knife, be hoppy, bottle rocket, finest kind, shoals, grunion, yeti, night shift, etc. not sure if all distribute to RI.

Probably, but looks to be harder to find than the Sierra at first cut.

put your zip code in and drop the menu to stout and it will show who has had sierra Nevada stout delivered recently, I tested it with my zip.

I had tried that and got some hits that I am not sure are correct before I posted. Did not line up with beermenus either. Might just stop by at a couple anyways to confirm or be pleasantly surprised.

Went back to my roots with some Lagunitas Sucks - man that is a good beer. Just pay attention to the brewed date stamped on the neck of the bottle. It's really hard to see and is in Julian date format which is day of the year then last digit signifies year. Example 355 6 would be Dec 21, 2016.

If it's more than three months old - pass on it and tell your packie they're stocking old beer.

yea, hard to find it seems. One hit on beermenus that seems to be bit suspect since I have never seen that place pop up prior to. Not too far away though.

stone ripper is a solid beer. nothing overly special but good and not crazy $$$$. I like whirlpool a lot, but it is $$$$ for what it is.

I like Ripper, have some, for other reasonable beers of that segment I prefer Two Roads Lil' Heaven - reasonable @ $16 a 12 pack
